Geertruy Kip Veeder
These Veeders made their home in Albany's third ward where Simon was building a business career that would make him one of the wealthiest Albany traders within a few decades.
However, Geertruy Kip Veeder would not live to reap the benefits of their success. She was just forty-one when she died in July 1746. Three years later, Simon Veeder re-married. In 1765, her two surviving children were provided for in the will of her older brother.
